February 23, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies may have found a woman reported missing since Sunday. A body was found inside a car near Castaic Tuesday. The car had signs on it warning of dangerous gas. A deputy on patrol spotted the blue Honda just before 10 a.m. Tuesday and saw someone slumped over the steering wheel.

But the deputy backed away after spotting warning signs on the car, which said "Stay Away" and "Dangerous Gas."

Deputies learned the car belonged to a woman who had been reported missing and was last seen Sunday.

Just before noon, firefighters wearing breathing apparatus opened the car.
